Government mechanisms have reached in all area of our country. As a rational voter, it is also our responsibility to make our authority holder government accountable to their work On contrary to it some said Government Should create equal opportunity and should look equally to all the citizen. Opportunity means to create equal playing field to all the players in society so that everyone can grow. It means there should be equal rule to all.
